[ ding ding ] [ applause ] >> those street views aren't instantaneous. that could have been taken awhile ago.

i don't remember reading corn. ouch. >> call back to a bit we did a really long time ago. >> stephanie: it is an old joke. 23 minutes -- by the way. [ ♪ "world news tonight" ♪ ] i was talking about why would you shoot through a bathroom door. we're talking about pistorius case. why would a shooter shoot from the outside unless -- [farting sounds] >> hang on, i've got a situation here. >> or maybe the shooter thought that the locked door would stop bullets. >> stephanie: witnesses heard nonstop shouting in the home of oscar pistorius shortly before. >> that's a pretty bad sign. >> stephanie: the defense will say he was shouting at what he thought was the burglar. i don't think he thought through that whole story. you don't normally give a story that detailed before you've talked to a -- what's the word, a lawyer. because it has some holes in it.
6:26am
>> the cricket bat is damming. >> stephanie: that's why they're saying it is even more damming if he gave that statement, before they know if there's dna evidence on the bat. 24 minutes after the hour. 1-800-steph-12. look who's here, everybody. thank you. ♪ from ohio, it's the john and pam show ♪ ♪ it's the john and pam john and pam, john and pam show ♪ >> stephanie: good morning john and pam show. >> good morning, sweet baby doll. how are all of my honeys? >> stephanie: your honeys are here and accounted for, thank you. >> caller: john's going to talk but i got one thing to ask. stephanie, that hateful letter you got this morning that came from a proud nra member. >> stephanie: you think so? could be. >> caller: i know so, sweetheart. i love you guys. now here's john. >> stephanie: thank you. hi john. >> caller: how are you guys doing today? >> stephanie: good.

6:28am
let's start hitting home runs up there. >> stephanie: baseball analogy means i'm with you on it. [ applause ] all right, the president talking. >> obama: they haven't come together. and done their jobs and so as a consequence, we've got these automatic brutal spending cuts. >> stephanie: he delivered, we actually carried some of that live yesterday. he talked about the troubling consequences of the sequester deep indiscriminate spending cuts to program set to take effect march 1st and demanding republicans drop their blanket revenues. blanked by a group of first responders, obama called them costing hundreds of thousands of jobs. which frankly i think the g.o.p. is hoping for then they'll go look what you did. this is their play they run every time. debt ceiling debates use the bully pulpit to portray republicans as obnoxious ideologues. >> that's not hard. >> that's because they're
6:29am
obnoxious ideologues. >> stephanie: both times obama emboldened by his election victory trounced the g.o.p. we'll see what happens this time. the president. >> obama: these cuts are not smart. they're not fair. they will hurt our economy. they will add hundreds of thousands of americans to the unemployment rolls. this is not an abstraction. people will lose their jobs. the unemployment rate might pick up again. >> i will denight president -- i will deny the president -- >> stephanie: boner said washington democrats new found concern about the president's sequester -- he's clever how he keeps calling it -- [ ♪ hypnotic ♪ ] >> obama quester. >> stephanie: social media boys and i came up with that over bourbon. >> and you can tell! >> obama quester. >> stephanie: rolls off the

[ laughter ] >> stephanie: i was mocking him for something -- is this where we break or no? >> yes. good lord. >> stephanie: replace the president's sequester will require a plan to cut spending to put us back on the path to a budget to keep the first responders on the job. what is the president willing to cut. it is his basic i know you are but what am i? obama's position is the more popular one. ran on it, won on it. fyi. the revenues he and senate democrats are proposing to turn off the sequester for a year requires millionaires to end tax loopholes and are well liked by the public. g.o.p. position is while there are ways to make the cuts more preferable to the sequester plan, they would rather see the
6:31am
sequester take effect than raise one penny in new revenue. paul ryan said sunday i believe the sequester is going to take place. so there. they're rooting for it. we'll talk more about this. 29 minutes after the hour. right back on "the stephanie miller show." compelling true stories. >> jack, how old are you? >> nine. >> this is what 27 tons of marijuana looks like.

6:37am
seriously. her husband was a fan of me and he hired me to interview cindy off-camera so she would look like she was talking to a person rather than just saying lines awkwardly like a model of some sort. >> like she did in that one movie she was in. >> stephanie: i was supposed to ask her -- the answers would seem conversational. i was supposed to make her laugh and stuff. >> how did that work for her? >> stephanie: not so much. >> how did it work for you? >> stephanie: good. i got paid a lot of money. [ laughter ] >> stephanie: i was out of work at the time. i'm sorry, am i in the commercial? is my voice? no. when do i need to be there? the first meeting they brought me in her trailer to meet her and i was like hi, cindy. she was on the phone. she just goes like that. comedy monkey, don't talk. don't talk to me. so i didn't. >> you're not very important to me finger. >> stephanie: i need you to hush now. >> a little different from the

6:39am
bit. why is it that we don't lean a little bit on the left a little more? like barack obama's ridiculous drone policy, his ridiculous lack of prosecution on -- you know on moody's with giving aaa ratings with the financial crisis. >> stephanie: let's start with the first one. >> caller: one more. >> stephanie: progressives, we're allowed to disagree. i agree with you there are some troubling things about the drone policy. it is not an easy debate, do you think? i would rather -- >> caller: i think it is a slam dunk, stephanie. >> stephanie: you don't think we should use drones at all? >> caller: no, we shouldn't. we have our navy seal team six. they're warriors, they're built to go in, take out -- >> stephanie: we're going to have a lot more american military deaths, right? >> caller: but if that means they're dying to save civilians in other countries, it is a worthy cause. that's what makes us --
6:40am
>> i see your point. >> the more innocent civilians we kill, the more enemies we create overseas. >> stephanie: matt, i tried to be honest about the fact if you watched rachel maddow's special the other night remembering the iraq war and how many millions died, you know, not just iraqis and americans unnecessarily. so i guess when you're comparing it to the way george bush fought the quote-unquote war on terror, how long we've been in afghanistan, because of the fact he took his eye off the ball, we went into iraq. seriously, how many millions of people are dead? that would have been alive? >> caller: why are we still in there? why aren't we pulling out? >> stephanie: of where? >> caller: afghanistan. why don't we put an expiration of 2014 and we all parked it and forgot it. we've still got kids dying. >> stephanie: he's getting out ahead of schedule, matt. ahead of where he said. >> caller: ahead of his schedule
6:41am
so we don't talk about it. we don't bring it up. >> stephanie: he ran on this. listen, i respect your ability to disagree with the president's policy but he did run on this, right? he said we're getting out of iraq. he said he was going to double down on afghanistan. he was going to finish and did he. he finished what george bush started in the sense that we went in there to get bin laden right? >> caller: we got bin laden. >> stephanie: we're drawing down in afghanistan. but see matt, this is part of -- you're right, as liberals, neighbor is something you and i don't like that much, we're withdrawing from afghanistan because we're doing more targeted drone strikes instead of american boots on the ground. >> caller: again, american boots on the ground shouldn't be the predicate of us killing civilians at any cost to save our butts. there comes a point where you're a warrior -- >> stephanie: but the drone strikes are targeted to avoid civilian casualties. >> but they don't. >> stephanie: i was just saying they're obviously designed to avoid civilian
6:42am
casualties. you can't tell me george bush didn't know he was going to kill a lot of civilians when he took out several blocks in baghdad right, trying to hit saddam hussein, even on some of the first strikes right? >> caller: again, you're talking about bush and i'm talking about mr. obama. i love president obama. i'll vote for him. i'll vote for him again. but at the same time you have a kid that's not behaving well in school, you don't pat them on the head. you give them a kick in the butt and just because the republicans are nuts and we can both agree on that -- >> stephanie: right. >> caller: if we spend our days picking out the pick dillos of the stupid things rush limbaugh says and we don't lean on our president it be a little more to the left -- >> stephanie: i think we do. progressives, we certainly do. we've been very outspoken about what we disagree with on the president. i don't see how that's -- >> stephanie: obviously he has moved to the left. look at how happy progressives were with his inaugural address. he has moved to the left on some
6:43am
issues. >> caller: it is wonderful window dressing and great theatre but i have yet to see one person from moody's or aig get prosecuted from this administration's doj. >> stephanie: as senator warren very aptly pointed out. >> she doesn't head up the department of justice. president obama is in charge of the department of justice and there hasn't been a single -- >> stephanie: matt, this was a good constructive conversation. i remain an obama apologist. >> the reasons those of us on the left don't say anything is because we get called nay-sayers by her. >> stephanie: you do it all the time. >> then we get shot down. >> stephanie: because it's my show! i can be an obama apologist and you can be nay-sayers, that's part of the magical charm of the show. [ ♪ magic wand ♪ ] i've said it over and over again. i don't care. my fellow obama apologist hal sparks will be here. i love this president. i do. i don't feel i have anything to
6:44am
apologize for. i think he will go down in history as one of our greatest presidents. i'm not saying i'm not troubled by the drone stuff and i'm not saying i didn't get matt's points. >> matt said he was a fan of president obama and he would vote for him again however the drone thing is very troubling. >> stephanie: not like you two are allowed to speak, just because i'm a big bitch doesn't mean you don't get to talk. >> it bothers me that julian assange has to hide while the bankers keep -- >> the department of justice has done absolutely nothing about wall street. that is troubling. >> stephanie: we played those elizabeth warren cuts. >> she can say all of that but it is the department of justice -- >> stephanie: she has more power now that she's in the senate. >> it is the department of justice. he's headed up ultimately by president obama because it is part of the executive branch. >> stephanie: senator warren, we gave money to, sexy liberal in boston. that's a way of leaning on -- forcing people to the left or the administration. it is getting people --
6:45am
remember, we did that article on what a great new liberal senate we have in terms of like a lot of the new people that have gotten in. so i'm saying i'm hopeful with senator warren. we have our alan grayson back in congress.

6:56am
military's going to use whatever tools they have at their disposal to save lives. most soldiers say it saves a lot of american soldiers' lives. >> caller: that's what it's supposed to do. >> stephanie: tom what i'm saying is i get the point as americans, we don't care about civilian casualties. we do. we always historically have. it is not wrong that it troubles people right? >> caller: right. it's not wrong but in the same sense, whenever you go to yemen and you teach people how to kill us you commit an act of treason. you get put on that list. and to make another point see it took our president two years to find osama bin laden. george bush and dick cheney and rumsfeld, we had him in afghanistan. then they called us off. but like the last caller was saying no one has gone to jail. >> stephanie: even if they sent a drone in then, think how many more people would be alive

6:59am
i wish -- most of us wish we weren't in there. i don't want to send someone else's children in there to prove my point. that's crazy. >> stephanie: darryl i think the success of the bin laden operation, you know, may also make people feel like everything always goes off perfectly without a hitch. we never lose one soldier and we take out the number one terrorist in the world. that was like an incredible amount of planning. an incredibly gutsy call on the part of the president. that's what i mean. in some ways, it may look so easy. why can't they solve everything, right? >> caller: it is a dangerous part. a friend of mine who served with me was first american killed in the green zone. safe part of iraq back in 2007. it is a dangerous part. i don't want to see anybody over there at all period. >> stephanie: yep, i hear ya. curtis in georgia real quick on the same subject. hey, curtis, go ahead. >> caller: good morning, how are you? >> stephanie: go ahead. 30 seconds. >> caller: i wanted to weigh in, we're fighting a different war. this is what we call

asymmetrical warfare. the enemy is not identified. you can't identify him. the use of drones be it against americans that claim to be terrorists or whatever they want to say is the best way to fight this war. and that's just the bottom line. if you don't have a defined line and an enemy using drones to kill the enemy is the best way to go. >> stephanie: all right. thank you curtis. 58 minutes after the hour. back with right-wing world maxine waters and more on "the stephanie miller show."

owners of this idea and as the party who want the cuts to kick in they deserve to and will bear more responsibility for the negative impacts. you'll recall it was the first time in his talking about how we got here and opposition party attempted to attach any conditions to increasing the debt limit. this remember, this is how we got there. the republicans had the leverage at that point because it seemed plausible they were crazy enough to put the country into default. so fine the white house proposed it only months after republicans demanding huge spending cuts, refusing to prepare revenues. in other words, this was the administration's idea much in the same way it is an apparent idea to pay ransom to someone who's taken his child hostage. there was a gun to the white house head which was the possibility of the country going into default. never done before. never filibusters a cabinet pick before. >> get rid of social security and medicare or the dog gets it. >> stephanie: tomasky writes it would have remained a

over and over again, it is hard to tell which part of it is that but there are a lot of firsts with this administration in terms of disrespect for this man and this office. you stopped flinching years ago. i do that. you don't do anything. >> because i know you don't mean it. >> stephanie: right. damn it. stole my power. 29 minutes after the hour. representative maxine waters next on "the stephanie miller show." going to do the young turks. i think the number one thing that viewers like about the young turks is that we're honest. they know that i'm not bs'ing them with some hidden agenda, actually supporting one party or the other. when the democrats are wrong, they know that i'm going to be the first one to call them out. they can question whether i'm right, but i think that the audience gets that this guy, to the best of his ability, is trying to look out for us.

7:37am
incredible and yet not here we go again. this is next friday. the president put out another -- an idea of doing a short term thing. some people call it kicking the can down the road. it literally -- we're at a point where it just seems -- ungovernable, you know what i mean. the position the republicans have put us in. i don't know how do you see this playing out this time? >> well, you're absolutely correct. it is kicking the can down the road continues to happen. you know, we entered into this when we were trying to raise the debt ceiling. they insisted on tremendous cuts and so we worked out something to kick the can down the road, to pay the bills of the government. and to deal with this at a later time. we thought that this would be so awesome that they would see the light by the time we got to this point. and they would join with us in coming up with a way by which to get revenue in and to pay down
7:38am
the debt. and do incredible balancing of the budget this way. but no, they're saying let it kick in. we don't care. we don't care if we prevent young kids from having a head start practice. we don't care if we endanger this country by not paying for our first responders who have the responsibility for our safety and security. we don't care if the food does not get inspected. this is serious! >> stephanie: i'll say. boy, when it comes at a time when again, for the first time in history as you say we got here because for the first time in history, they literally threaten toed have the united states go into default and tie it to this. now they have filibustered a republican war hero as the president's cabinet pick. again, first time in history. i just -- you feel like we just had an election. >> they're just obstructionists.
7:39am
they have said that they wanted to change government as we know it. they're trying to take it apart piece by piece. these are people who hate government. they work in it but they came to destroy it. and it is so obvious. i think that they began to define themselves in this election. that's why they did so poorly. and you know, i think the american people are finally waking up and seeing that despite the fact they encourage us to get along to work together to compromise. there is no compromising with these people! they are mean. they're ornery and out to destroy this government. and thus, the democracy. >> stephanie: representative i was reading a quote from chris matthews. he literally compared it to how we would bring down enemy governments from the inside. the republicans are trying to do to -- i think what they're hoping for is they know how much the cuts will hurt the economy and then they'll blame the president, right? >> oh, yes. oh absolutely. every opportunity that they get to blame the president, to lie
7:40am
to the american public, they do that. even recently, i heard that when the president announced that he put together this database so that they could get people more involved in government, more involved in issues, you know, addressing this through action and all of that, now they're calling it -- he gathered all of the secret information on everybody. ah-ha. see, we told you that your government is not your friend. they're invading your privacy. they have all of this information. they're going to use it against you. it is absolutely crazy! >> stephanie: well, yeah. again, i was just reading a piece from the "daily beast." he was saying, mike tomasky was saying he think the american people are on to the republicans. this is what the president was using the bully pulpit for yesterday. do you think so? this is what they're betting on. this is now the third or so game of chicken in a row they're playing with the president.
7:41am
how do you think this is going to play out? >> well, i think it is going to backfire on them. the american public is indeed understanding the difference between the democrats and the republicans and the right-wingers and the tea party people and what they're doing. even though they recognize that they're in trouble at least some of them recognize that and they're supposed to be getting together to strategize and to change their ways and to show some respect to immigrants and all of that, they just can't seem to let it go. they just can't seem to do the right thing. and so i think they're headed toward the end of a republican party because the american people are getting on to them. they're going to continue to learn about who they are. i think it will bring them down. >> stephanie: newt gingrich, as much as said that. they won't vote for immigration if they think it's the president's because they don't like him. this is what we've come to? >> this is what we've come to.
7:42am
mitch o'connell said his number one priority was to bring this president down. that's what we're dealing with. >> stephanie: i was struck, congresswoman, you were there in the hall for the state of the union which i thought was tremendous. i thought here are people clapping politely. the house republicans are going to try -- they're not going to try to do anything the president proposed largely the american people are on his side for. that's why they voted for him. they literally -- and i think john boehner said as much. none of that is going to happen they've just talked about in the state of the union. >> yeah. i think they're showing who they really are when they did not vote to help the people after the hurricane and the storm with sandy. and you know, this has never happened either. this is what this country does. we come to the aid of a community, of a city, of a state. whenever there is a natural
7:43am
disaster. and people are you know, put in very difficult situations with their homes being destroyed. and we have to fight to get them to vote to support rebuilding and giving emergency aid. so they're crazy. >> stephanie: i love how you say it. you say it the way it is. congresswoman waters you know, obviously a lot of the emotional high point everybody thought the speech was clearly -- the president's thoughts on gun control. during the state of the union. but i mean, even -- where we've gotten in the debate in this country. there's ted nugent sitting in the chamber who has threatened the about -- the president's life. i heard some republican agreed with a right wing radio host and had to apologize the president is using gabby giffords as a prop in the gun control debate. have we gotten to the point where we can't have a decent human debate about these issues? >> we're way past the point where we can have a decent
7:44am
debate. not only have they undermined this president in extraordinary ways, you know and people rallied with guns on their side, they said he was not born in the united states. every opportunity that they get to try and destroy him. they use it. you saw their reaction at the state of the union. these are guys who couldn't show sympathy for gabby giffords who, you know, almost lost her life in that extraordinary attack on her! and they don't care. they don't respect the fact that these children were killed in the way that they were killed up in connecticut. and when he did that extraordinary moment, when he talked about babies, they should have been on top of the ceiling
7:45am
applauding with us. some of them did not stand or applaud. >> stephanie: congresswoman waters, do you think legislatively this time is different on gun control or no? >> i beg your pardon? >> stephanie: do you think things are different this time legislatively on gun control or not? >> i think that we've reached the time we're going to get something. i think the centerpiece of it is going to be universal background checks. i think we have a consensus and i think we'll be able to pull a few from the opposite side of the aisle to join in a majority on that. i think that, you know, the fact that your gun dealers, you know, have to do these background checks. but these people at these gun shows selling guns out of the back of their cars don't have to do it. we'll have to close that loophole. we have to have universal background checks on everybody. i think we can get to that. i think we might be able to get to some mental health resources and ways by which we can be
7:46am
supportive of families and individuals who have problems that we need to teach them how to recognize and what to do and places to go to deal with that. so there are a few things that i think it will change but i don't believe we're going to take the huge step, the big step and really deal with an assault weapons ban in the way that many americans would like to do. >> stephanie: well, you know, i -- you know me. i'm a happy clappy liberal but i guess at this point, you have to feel like anything is better than nothing. who knows. if we get a new congress, what we can get done down the road. >> we're working very, very hard to get something done. the nra has been in control for too long. you know, literally all of the congress of united states of america. all of this money that they put out there to lobby you know, well over a million dollars every year. and then, you know, the support for their candidates and the
7:47am
attempt to you know, stop candidates who are opposed to guns, they spend $7, $8 million doing that in the last election. they've intimidated elected officials for far too long. i'm pleased to see what mayor bloomberg is doing. mayor bloomberg is targeting those pro gun candidates. he's up in chicago where the seat for jesse jackson jr. is being contested. he is going to stop the candidates that is pro gun. he just knocked off one of the candidates here in california. in the last election. so we're finding that resources are gathering and gabby giffords and her husband started a foundation and so maybe they can put some support behind candidates who want to stand up but that are scared so that they can really vote their conscience on this stuff. >> stephanie: absolutely. way pastime. speak of which way pastime. you have to get back to democracy now.

chuck hagel filibuster. republicans have doubled down with their shameful filibuster of secretary of defense chuck hagel. add to this fresh insult of rand paul to put a hold on john brennan. looks like republicans are backing a cynical strategy that could compromise national security while proliferating partisanship. let's put it this perspective. republicans decided to filibuster a republican secretary of defense nominee. someone mitch mcconnell once called one of the most respected foreign policy. someone john mccain said would be an excellent secretary of state in his administration. it's fictional one. avalon writes this bitter confirmation fight is sadly ironic because picking a member of the opposite party usually an olive branch. remember how that would be seen as outreach? no longer. the abuse of a filibuster to delay or block the confirmation of the secretary of defense raises questions about filibuster reform because if a senator had to hold the floor and risk his bladder like jimmy
